Anytime Fitness opens 50th Australian club
With 50 clubs now open in Australia, Anytime Fitness is making it easier for
people to work out – even at two in the morning!
Anytime Fitness' 24/7 concept means there are really no longer any 'time'
excuses for not working out, with research even showing that 10 per cent of
members work out between the hours of 10 pm and 5 am.
Justin McDonell, co-founder of Anytime Fitness Australia, said the 24-hour
concept brings all types of people through their doors.
"Anytime Fitness makes it easier for members to stay committed to their fitness
goals because of the convenience of our clubs. We get the early birds, shift
workers, those who are a bit more image-conscious and prefer working out when
there are less people at the gym and simply those who feel like jumping on a
treadmill at 11 pm," McDonell said.
With over 1,400 clubs now open worldwide, members can even work out while they
are overseas on business or holiday.
"The first Australian Anytime Fitness club opened in Gunnedah in NSW in November
2008 and we've come a long way since then. We're planning to have an additional
300 clubs open around Australia in the next five years," McDonell said.
"The response to our 24-hour fitness club concept has been phenomenal," he
